MARTIALIS, DIE EPIGRAM EN DIE GENRE-HIERARGIE

J. Swanepoel

Abstract


INLEIDING
Marcus Valerius Martialis (c.40-c.104 n.C.), die Spaansgebore Latynse digter van die
sogenaamde Silwertydperk van die Latynse literatuurgeskiedenis, is tradisioneel as 'n
betreklik ongekompliseerde digter beskou. As 'n mens egter op die kritiese debat in die
laaste dekade of wat let, is dit duidelik dat die tipering van Martialis as "a delightfully
uncomplicated soul" (Copley 1969:324) toenemend bevraagteken word. Die verskuiwing in
opvatting oor die aard en waarde van Martialis se digterskap, maak waarskynlik deel uit
van 'n omvattender herevaluering van die post-Augusteiese Latynse literatuur (kyk Boyle
1991:114).
